Who else thought it was really Barack in the video?
The term "Fake News" has always been around, but it's definitely heightened in use since Donald Trump became president in America. I'm sure if we ran through his numerous tweets, one in every five would have him declaring the term because of an article that wasn't in his favour. Aside from Donald's use of the term, we can't deny that we are living in a time where more than ever, we need to stay vigilant about credible sources on the internet.
Jordan Peele and former president 'Barack Obama' agree with the importance of not falling for Fake News as they've just released a PSA on the matter. "We’re entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point at time — even if they would never say those things,” 'Barack' says in the video below. “So, for instance, they could have me say things like, I don’t know, Killmonger was right! Or, Ben Carson is in the sunken place! Or, how ‘bout this: simply, President Trump is a total and complete dipshit.”
The screen then splits in the video and we see that it's actually Jordan voicing Barack because it's just a digitally manipulated version of the former president (insert wide-eyed emoji).
“This is a dangerous time. Moving forward, we need to be more vigilant with what we trust from the internet… Stay woke, bitches,” Jordan/Barack ends the video. Watch below.
